The Epic Star Destroyer Crash

There are no words I can type to express how truly incredible this creation is to me. Simon Liu created something I did not expect to see recreated in LEGO this well, or recreated in general. Why? Well, I'm not quite sure. Apparently, Simon is simply powerful with the Force. A masterful shot featured in the latest Star Wars film, under the direction of Gareth Edwards, was two Imperial Star Destroyers smashing into each other at this interesting angle. Under the command of Admiral Raddus, a Hammerhead corvette pushed a disabled Destroyer into another, which lead to the destruction of the shield over Scarif. This is no doubt a complex scene to have done in LEGO, yet Simon indeed achieved the angles, destruction, and overall appearance so well! This has got to be my favorite model from Simon to date. Incredible!

Nathaniel Stoner

     My name is Nathaniel Stoner, and I am an very active LEGO builder.  I mostly build in the themes of castle and science-fiction, but I also dabble in other genres and create occasional random MOC's (My Own Creations). 

     When I was younger, I would get and build small LEGO sets for my birthday, but I was never really into them.  When they fell apart, I would become frustrated attempting to put them back together and would throw them in a box in my closet.  I couldn't stand them!

     Then, miraculously, I became addicted to the LEGO brick later in my teen years.  Ever since, I have continued to build up (pun intended) my collection of bricks and to expand my knowledge of techniques and building skills.  LEGO is truly more than a toy, its an art form and a way to express yourself.

     For the most part, I collect LEGO Star Wars (mainly the minifigs), which is probably my favorite LEGO theme.  I have a fairly decent collection, including some of the original 1999 sets, such as the Snowspeeder, X-Wing, and Naboo starfighter.  I also collected LEGO the Lord of the Rings when those sets first came out.  The minifigs are great, and the story remains one of my favorites ever. 

     My hope is to inspire other young (and perhaps even older) LEGO builders to unleash their inner creativity!  You can find me on my Flikr here
